Dialogmuseum, Frankfurt

4.6
Blind guides lead you through six different settings in absolute darkness at Dialogmuseum, where scents, sounds, wind, temperature, and texture alone create a fascinating experience. The project is meant to reveal the challenges and experiences faced by blind people every day. At the Taste of Darkness restaurant, you will need to rely on your taste and scent alone to distinguish which dish you are trying. In the Casino for Communication, improvisation, creativity, and teamwork are required to solve games without the use of sight. Based on the popular Dialogue in the Dark exhibit in Hamburg, this experience is sure to challenge the way you think--and see. By using our Frankfurt sightseeing planner, you can arrange your visit to Dialogmuseum and other attractions in Frankfurt.

  • My parents took me here for my birthday a couple of years back. It was a one of kind experience. You follow a guide through nothing but darkness and everyday stress sounds, crossing a light, kicking a...  more »
  • I was with friends in the dialog Museum and we have listened to the exhibition "stowaway" and felt. By viewing you can really talk in this case ;-) our guide was called Thomas and wonderfully brought us through the exhibition. He always helped group members if you somewhere not has progressed. Overall, it was a very interesting experience to feel just the ears and hands, legs to hear. We can highly recommend the Museum and will visit sure to an other exhibition again. Many thanks again to Thomas for the excellent leadership :-)

  • Great impressions in a world of complete darkness, a museum where there is nothing to see. I heard and felt things much more intense.

  • This was an excellent experience, with an upbeat and informative guide seamlessly leading the seven of us, in two languages. We tried out a variety of environments that posed unexpected challenges and offered unexpected pleasures too. The 90 minutes passed so quickly, it was astonishing. What is especially strange is that some of what I experienced in total darkness has been written over with visual memories, as though I had seen things that I know I only took in through other senses. Very cool!
  • Very cool concept. You walk through a pitch black museum for an hour, guided by voice instructions and your very own blind stick. Navigate simulated crosswalk, stairs, gravel paths, etc. Ends with a bar where you order drinks. Ever paid for stuff when you can't see your money?! Really eye opening - pun intended. But seriously, very good.
  • A really great experience. Went with a friend and made a few new friends in the process.
  • I loved the experience! I especially liked that the blinding is not done with folds, but with complete darkness. Being more or less helpless for 90 minutes with a blind person as a guide was well worth the price. Book a slot beforehand, though. The only minus I'd give this place is that it was quite crowded and cramped during the tour. We were an 8-people group, and I suppose that's about the average size there.
  • A museum which makes you think. I was deeply affected by the concept and had to catch my breath after coming out.
